Evidentialism is a popular theory of epistemic justification, yet, as early proponents of the theory Earl Conee and Richard Feldman admit, there are many elements that must be developed before Evidentialism can provide a full account of epistemic justification, or well-founded belief. It is the aim of this book to provide the details that are lacking;... more...

A provocative sequel to The Torchlight List , this book examines the answers that thinkers throughout the ages?from Plato in ancient Greece to contemporary psychologists and scientists?have proposed for life?s great questions: Do human beings have free will?

In our daily lives we make lots of evaluations of actions. We think that driving above the speed limit is dangerous, that giving up one?s bus seat to the elderly is polite, that stirring eggs with a plastic spoon is neither good nor bad. We understand, too, that we may be praised or blamed for actions performed on the basis of these evaluations.... more...

Why should inquiry be possible, only if some knowledge is required to guide it, as conventionally understood?

And these principles impose some constraints,... more...
